arrhythmia during sex
My wife was diagnosed with with heart arrhythmia several years ago. Recently during sex (orgasm) she has mentioned the condition has returned. Should we be concerned and contact our doctor.

Do you know what type of arrhythmia she was diagnosed with?  Did it only last a few minutes when she had it?

I am replying to your post, because I also have the same trouble with heart problems during sex.

Mine last the whole time, and sometimes I get sick for a couple of days, and I know my heart isn't beating properly. I have PVC's and altough I haven't been formaly diag. I think I have A-Fib as well, and sex sets it off.

I don't know if this is your wife's problem or not, the doctors tell me not to stop doing anything, but as time goes on they seem to be listening more and more about my bouts.

I would be happy to discuss anything with your wife further if she would like to. I am a 41 yr. old and just been diagnosed recently, and I was glad to find another woman with this problem.

Thanks

Lynda

Many different types of arrhythmia can be induced during sex or anything that increases adrenaline levels.  Depending of the type of arrhythmia and how long it lasts would determine the treatment.
